The Niagara Literary Arts Festival (NLAF) is a month-long celebration of Canadian and Global literature and the arts, that takes place during June in the incredible Niagara Region.

Participating venues include local book stores, libraries, community centers, cafes, pubs and outdoor locations around the Region. We welcome any artist, author or musician of any genre of writing, art or music to participate in the NLAF and to join us in celebrating the wealth of artistic talent in both Niagara and the world.

You can join an existing event, create your own or collaborate with other local arts organizations to create a multi-day event. Just send us your ideas!
